My dad is 90 and may have had PD for some time now..you know how it doesn't announce it's arrival with a fanfare but tends to creep up. He has been doing very well. A determined soul who exercises everyday and maintains quite a pragmatic and positive attitude.
today I was saddened to hear that his mobility seemed to escape him. From last evening he suddenly became very weak, couldn't get up from the chairs and needed to use a frame to get any where. This morning he couldn't get out of bed or dress with out help.
Has anyone else had such a sudden and unexpected decline in function? Is if part of the ongoing decline or might it be a temporary blip?
any answers, opinions or experiences gratefully received
